For the first time we turned the Christmas lights “switch on” event into a Christmas Fair in the Mechanics. The event was a great success, with at times queues forming to get in. There were free craft workshops, craft and gift stalls, tombola, Santa’s grotto, a raffle and refreshements.

Entertainment was provided by –

2pm – Storytellers.
2.45pm – Belly dancers.
3.30pm – Bernadette Heys’ dancing school.
4.15pm – Junior school choir.
5.00pm – Infant and Nursery school choir.

The switch on regulars were also there for the crowds outside – The Thieving Magpies, Marsden’s Junior Band, Unity Choir, Jack Frost and the Frosties as well as Father Christmas on his sleigh.
